      I watched "Capone" last night with Ben Gazarra recorded from Talking Pictures. I think that the TV Censor was on holiday when this was shown !!

              Yes, petty, and just plain dumb.

                Mmm. Russ Meyer's "Beyond The Valley of The Dolls" at 9.25 tonight.

                This could be interesting.

                  I suggest a polite email to them inquiring on this very subject, as well as congratulating them for showing rare British movies (something I'm sure all of us feel).

                    Indeed, many thanks to them, although could they shrink the size of their logo a bit!

                      ...and replace that 'faux twee' continuity announcer.

                        I think that you might mean their DOG (Digital On-screen Graphic) shown in the corner of the screen during broadcasts

                          Though their DOG is considerably smaller than that on ITV3, ITV4, 5, 5 USA, SPIKE and some others I don't watch ...

                            The British Board of Film Classification have cut the UK video release by 53 seconds. New opening credits were required for this release, as the BBFC would not allow a montage shot of a gun being pushed into the mouth of a sleeping woman, a scene that also reappears in full at the end of the movie (and was also cut). Ironically, the film has been broadcast uncut several times on UK network TV, by Channel 4.

                              Saw Shalako on London Live a couple of days ago. In one of the opening scenes a scout is left to die while balanced on a spear by the Apaches and the scene is cut in the final moments, but I had to laugh while watching The Malta Story on Talking Pictures yesterday when the warning came up at the start of the film stating that the picture contained "mild offensive language". Sure enough I had to cover my ears when the words "ruddy" and "damn" cropped up during the film !!!!!

                                Found the answer. DVD classification is not applied to TV broadcasting, which has it's own complicated code, here:
                                https://www.ofcom.org.uk/tv-radio-an...broadcast-code.The crucial issue for broadcasters is the 9pm watershed, certain films cannot be shown before 9pm without edits. So blame Ofcom.
